I came across A Temptation Of Angels on Goodreads, while surfing the site for some books. Cover is what captured my attention, the girl looked so mysterious. I love books about Angels and I had check this book out, and glad that I did, it was fantastic! The book was filled with action, adventure and mystery from the first page. This is a first book that I read by Michelle Zink, and after reading A Temptation of Angels, I plan on reading rest of her books. I would highly recommend checking out this book, you’ll find yourself unable to put it down.


Even angels make mistakes
When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world’s past, present, and future.

Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.

Michelle Zink captured my attention from first sentence. Temptation Of Angels started out with sixteen year old, Helen escaping her house when her parents are attacked. From moment Helen woke up, heard noises, I knew that something was going to happen and not anything good. In beginning, I wasn’t sure what was going on but I found myself rooting for Helen, to escape, especially when the house started burning. Way Helen handled herself, while having no idea what was going on, made me admire her. Even though at times she seemed stubborn to me, not following the brother’s directions, I saw the way she progressed, how much stronger she grew through the journey.

The Brothers, I honestly fond of them both from beginning, the fact how different they were but yet, both of them were willing to do anything, to protect Helen. Griffin, now him I adored, he was so sweet towards Helen from moment they met, and even he didn’t know Helen, he wanted to protect her. I knew right then, that something would happen between two of them, so of course I wasn’t surprised when they had fallen in love. I loved the scenes between two of them, it always filled with so much passion.

History of angels that was told within the story fascinated me, I was always into historic fiction within novels too. There wasn’t a moment in this novel that was dull, there was always something going on, some action. Now, there was also a surprise within book. Raum. I did not see the end coming, even though I had a feelings that he had feelings for her, I never imagined that she would have feelings for him, I thought that was kind of sudden twist and it was only for that reason that I gave it 4.8 stars. To me, it just seemed kind of rushed. Otherwise, Michelle added a nice ending to the book, but it did kind wish me it was series, to see what next in store for Helen, Griffin. This was enjoyable read.
